Module Six: Are you ready for a design Thinking Challenge?
1. Why does Design Thinking make sense in education?
Design thinking makes sense in education as it is a hands-on experience which promotes and encourages passion for students. Students will enjoy the thought of having a choice to decide on the topic which appeals to them. This allows students to be in control of their learning which will motivate them as learners and encourage participation.
2. Why is it important to consider Design Thinking as a scaffold for learning in 2017?
Design thinking provides students with a chance to express their skills in practical way which is a contrast to the traditional text book approach. This permits creative learners to express their ideas in a way that is conformable for them. It is important we as teachers embed creative thinking in all KLA’s.
